Cordae Connects w/ Roddy Ricch On ‘Gifted’ + The Visual Is Dedicated To The Revolution 

Cordae Connects w/ Roddy Ricch On ‘Gifted’ + The Visual Is Dedicated To The Revolution 

Cordae dropped his first single since dropping the YBN from his name! 

“Gifted” has a feature with Roddy Ricch. It’s produced by Ray Keys, Bongo, and Cordae The Fader reports. The dope track celebrates where the two rappers are now and how far they’ve come. They trade melodic verses, reminiscing on life before fame. The visual reflects the same thing as the pair walk down an old neighborhood and end up in a mansion in Hollywood Hills. 

Notable lyrics

Sh*t, n*gga, this the shit that I asked for

‘Member last year I was mad poor

Seen my momma cry over homicides

Now she down to fly, she got a passport

And my brother locked for a backdoor

Got my grandma a new Jaguar

Big body whips like Shaq car

No credit, check, straight cash, card

N*gga, no stress, I progress

The visual is directed by Cole Bennett, and it’s dedicated to the revolution. During the video, a message reads, “the revolution has always been in the hands of the young, the young always inherit the revolution.” Take a look:

Cordae dropped the YBN from his name after his group allegedly split earlier this month for an unknown reason. It just seems like musically, everyone was going in different directions.

Cordae celebrated his 23rd birthday and “Gifted” was a gift to his fans. “Another year around the Sun. Glory be to God. I’m so grateful for this blessed life I live and all who are apart of it. I really do what I love for a living and I’ll never take it for granted. History in the Making…. Oh and ima drop a song tomorrow. My gift to y’all #Gifted.”

Cordae has also been involved (always has been) in the Black lives matter movement. He was arrested in July when dozens of people gathered in front of Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s house to demand justice for Breonna Taylor and to hold the officers who murdered her accountable. Other celebrities like Trae Tha Truth, Porsha Williams, and Yandy Smith were arrested and later released.
